- How can I politely decline a team lunch? 8 answers
From another post on this website I've seen that "I should just be honest with my team and let them know", I'm not sure if it would be the same here?
Every time my team has a new member, we go on a team lunch, based on the new members choosing. The new member has already told me that he wants to go out and eat non-veg, most likely fish or non-veg soup.
This is a problem to me because:
a) I don't eat non-veg
b) If I do come then I would have to buy something vegetarian while there is meat all around me (which makes me kind of uncomfortable and makes me loose my appetite)
c) I feel like if I tell them about this situation then they will just decide to go to a vegetarian place, in which case the new member does not get to choose and has to accept even if they don't want to
I am not sure how to approach this situation?
